Bush/Cheney Pot calling the Kettle black!

Anniversary of ’05 Uzbek Uprising

The Bush/Cheney Neocons would have loved patterning the USA after the repressive government of Uzbekistan but thanks to our constitution (although, a bit tattered from the last 8 years) for not allowing them this fantasy. With all their criminal efforts they have rendered America as the Pot and Uzbekistan the Kettle. The charred blackness which is on the Pot; doesn't see the black on himself and calls the kettle black! thinkingblue.blogspot.com

How much influence should the US try to exercise — if any at all — over another country’s behavior? And will that country be receptive, given the abuse, indefinite detentions and closed tribunals that have been part of the United States’ record in recent years?

Bullet holes have been plastered over.


Three years ago this month, the government in this eastern Uzbek city turned
its guns on its own citizens, killing hundreds and drawing condemnation and
sanctions from the West for what was the bloodiest repression since Tiananmen
Square.

torture is endemic
government’s gestures are intended to distract attention from the fact that it
never allowed an independent review of the killings in Andijon.
